Please be cautious!
The asphalt overlay project has started on #1B, from Exit 4 northwest to the City of Jefferson.  That portion of #1B is closed to thru traffic; the contractor is currently milling asphalt off of the roadway.  Various aspects of the project will continue to take place.  The project is projected to be completed around the end of May.  This portion of #1B will be closed to thru traffic for the duration of the project.
There will be heavy truck traffic on Military Road that runs parallel to I 29 on the east side between Exit 4 and the City of North Sioux City.  The ground asphalt is being stockpiled at the county property
in that location.
